Whether you have a date with your university sweetheart or are heading there as a gang, one thing is for certain: You need to look elegant and classy whilst protecting that still-a-student bank balance. What to wear for the grad ball may be the hot topic on your WhatsApp group chat, but the smartest grads also consider the best fashion student discounts around.

We'll take a look at what to wear and where you can save some of your dwindling student loan using our exclusive fashion discount codes. Our fashion gurus have been working hard to bring you the rules to stick to for nailing your grad ball outfit. 

What to wear to grad ball - rules to live by

You may have been proudly branding your leggings and sweatpants all semester as you navigate the campus traffic slightly hungover. However, the grad ball is no place for your regular student attire, no matter how comfortable you were feeling. Achieving the right look is key and it’s always better to over-dress than under-dress at a grad ball. If you’re looking for some tips to throw together the perfect grad ball outfit, here are some basic rules to live by:

Stick to classic material 

Silk, linen, cotton and similar materials are timeless because they never step out of fashion. Stick to these materials.

Neutral is never a no

Neutral block colours such as creams, whites, greys and blacks are always a good choice for stylish dressing.

Accessories can make or break an outfit 

The right accessories can really add that extra ‘wow’ to an outfit. Statement jewellery against a simple dress is perfect. Don’t go over the top with accessories though – three is enough!

Fitted is perfection 

You can own the most elegant outfit that suits your skin tone and style, but if it does not fit perfectly the effect is lost. Formal dresses cut on the bias often offer a more flattering fit.

Feel good 

At the end of the day, your grad ball is about having fun. If you throw every other ‘rule’ out the window, make sure you stick to this one. Don’t wear something that isn’t ‘you’ for the sake of fashion. Feel good in what you’re wearing, let your hair down and have a good time!
